What is holding you back? Your here right, you know you should be more than you feel or are today. Every single day of your life you are going to be able to find an excuse, someone to blame, something more important that you have to do that will keep you from what you told your self you were going to accomplish. Maybe you look in the mirror and see everything you are not. You have a laundry list of things you would change, fix or do differently. People around you may even laugh at your dreams or tell you it will never happen. Your just not happy… but why? What happened to your goals, dreams and higher aspirations? What is holding you back? You are the creator of your world. You are the creator! Dreams are like the seeds you plant in the garden. You plant it, fertilize it and water it. It may be weeks or months before the first sprig appears breaking though the ground and like the avacado plant, it may be years after that before the plant is ready to bear fruit. But you trust in the process and know that all the hard work and patience will more than likely pay off. What makes your dreams different from that seed… I challenge you right now to sit down and write your vision, dreams and goals on a sheet of paper. Don’t try to solve how to make them happen. PUT YOUR DREAMS and GOALS down on paper. Don’t be embarrassed or hold back. This is not something to take lightly, not something to do without a full commitment… If it your dream, your goal and or your vision write it down and be specific. If it is to make 100 grand a year write it down. If it is a new house or a new car write it down but be very specific! Start that business, Find that new partner, learn that foreign language. It is time to Raise your standards. This isn’t like new years resolutions that you only remember whhen you let yourself down. These are your dreams that you are going to put all your focus and belief in… Things that you are ready to hold close to your heart, put in the long hours and accomplish. So, step one…Write it all down… Take that list and make it the first thing you read each day and as you read it, be thankful as if each of the things has already happened. Feel the joy, the excitement, that amazing feeling of accomplishment as if they are already done! Take that excitement into your day! Whenever your having a tough moment or doubt the preocess take the list out and remind yourself of the feeling of achieving your goals! The next thing is action… Everyday you will find excuses, other things more important, or tell yourself “I don’’t have time” or “I’ll do this tomorrow” but that is not good enough. Even if you only have 5 minutes or just a minute get in the habit of working on your dreams everyday. If you don’t know where to start, pull out your list and read it out loud. With this new habit you will find that new people, new choices, new opportunites start to appear around you. Don’t ignore them… Always remember that the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. Don’t miss your dream because you forget to take that first step each day… The more you condition yourself on a daily basis with the gratitude and commitment to the dreams the more you will see and feel the progress. Don’t get me wrong as not everyday is going to be easy and some days you will feel as though it is not working but that is where you need to know that the universe is moving to meet your needs and trust the process… Always remember that you get out of life what you have the courage to ask and belief for… Did you catch that… You get out of life what you have the courage to ask and belief for… In other words… Ask and you shall receive. So make today the day, belief in yourself, raise your standards and commit to your journey to be everything you know you are and accomplish great things.
